I know that there has been a wave of confusion and upset going through the server lately about what exactly is to become of their beloved server, and I haven’t really addressed it until now. I am painfully aware of the rumors going around that BlockBox is closing on April 19th. I myself created and for a while believed those rumors up until a week ago when I got the whole BlockBox team together in a very large Skype call to discuss what was happening.
In the conference, we mainly talked about things that had nothing to do with the server, however we did accomplish a few things in the 6-odd hours we were together. We welcomed the very distinguished Elycin to our staff, worked towards opening the wonderful spawn so beautifully constructed by PunkAssClown, and even started on the behind-the-scenes work needed to open a minigame server.
The overall consensus was that we are going to try to see to it that the server will not be closing. With that said, there are a lot of jobs to be filled and a lot of work to be done in order to keep the server running smoothly. Elycin will be assisting with server-side maintenance and configuration, and I’ve once again opened staff applications to crack down on the large amount of griefers and undesirable players we’ve been seeing lately, however that leaves a lot of positions unfilled and nobody in sight to fill them. It’s yet to be seen where we’ll find people to take these various responsibilities, but I’ll keep you posted on any new developments.
